News in Brief: Melina & Jillian Join Lucha Libre USA Tour, LuFisto Title Win, Kana in SHIMMER & More

Diva Dirt is back with another fix of news, notes and tidbits in the world of women’s wrestling. Check it out below:

In one of her first matches in about four months, LuFisto won the vacant LuchaPOP Femenil Title on February 19. She defeated La Vaquerita in singles action on the DDD/X-Project show.

Sexy Star was originally scheduled to be her opponent for the match, so one might assume that the two will probably face off at some point in the future.

On the VO/X-Project show, also held at the Arena Lopez Monterrey on February 19, Vanely and Yuki Star beat Big Mama and La Felina.

Over in Japan on the same date, for SMASH.25, Syuri defeated Kana to become the new SMASH Divas Champion. She is the third ever champion (with the others being Tomoka Nakagawa and Kana, the latter of whom has two reigns under her belt) – and may possibly be the last, with SMASH’s last show to take place on March 14.

On the same show, Kagetsu, Nanae Takahashi and Tomoka Nakagawa beat Aki Shizuku, Lin Bairon and Makoto in a six woman tag match at 8:40.

Speaking of Kana, it’s recently been announced that she’ll be returning to the United States in just a few short weeks for the upcoming SHIMMER tapings on March 17 and 18.

The joshi star made quite the impression at the last set of tapings (volumes 41-44) in October 2011. She was all business upon her arrival in Chicago, showing everyone there that she was not in SHIMMER to make friends, but rather to prove her worthiness as a wrestler inside the ring. Kana even went as far as to refuse handshakes with some of SHIMMER’s top wrestlers.

She then went on to wrestle in well-received matches against the likes of Cheerleader Melissa, Sara Del Rey, Mia Yim and LuFisto.

The weekend after SHIMMER, on October 7, she made her debut for CHIKARA at their “Small But Mighty” event in North Carolina against “Everybody’s Favourite Girlfriend” Jessie McKay. The very next day, on October 8, she and Del Rey wrestled in CHIKARA’s main event spot at their “Klunk in Love” show in Tennessee.
